Sleeper summer film hit The Help has topped the U.S. box office in its second week on release.

The movie, starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Viola Davis and Emma Stone, has made an impressive $20.5 million over the weekend to take over the top spot from Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

The Help has now made over $70 million since its release earlier this month. The Planet of the Apes prequel comes in second place with a third-weekend take of $16.3 million and the rest of the top five features new movies, which garnered disappointing ticket sales.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D came in third with $12 million, while remakes of Conan The Barbarian and Fright Night round out the top five.
